It was paged by the UK Coastguard at 7.57pm to assist the owner of George after the canine had suffered a possible broken leg as a result of falling on rocks 400 metres to the north of the causeway at St Mary’s Island.

Nine TVLB members arrived at the scene and carefully transferred the dog into a basket stretcher before carrying him off the rocks.

George was then placed into a car and was taken to a local vet for further assessment.
